23 November 2015

Read our guide to Tuesday night's League One clash

Millwall will look to stretch their unbeaten run of games into double figures when they take on Fleetwood Town at Highbury on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

The Lions are nine without defeat in all competitions and have lost just once away from home so far this season.

Fleetwood ended a four-game winless streak in style on Saturday when they thrashed Swindon Town 5-1 - their third home victory of the season so far - which lifted The Cod Army out of the drop zone and up to 19th. Steven Pressley's side are 10 points off of Millwall, who are eighth, but Tuesday's hosts have also played a game more.

This week's game marks the first-ever meeting between the two sides.

What the managers say

Steven Pressley: "Millwall don't play the game as pure as Swindon do so the chance of pressuring the game so high becomes more difficult. So it presents a different type of game plan and a different type of strategy, and that's what we've been looking at. The one thing we must do though if we are to get a result is to play with the same levels of energy and intensity." Read more from Pressley by clicking here.

Neil Harris: "They play a different style of football to us so I have to consider that when thinking about my team selection and certainly a change of shape comes into my mind up against their formation. Fleetwood are coming off the back of a good victory so they will have their tails up and will be looking forward to the game. But so are we - we're nine unbeaten and we are looking to extend that run." Read more from Harris by clicking here.

Team news

Jimmy Ryan is expected to recover from a back injury, sustained in the win over Swindon, in time for Tuesday's game. Danny Andrew is pushing for a recall after returning to full fitness.
